Hiya Ward! I know Treehouse error aint much of a help and pretty stubborn as hell too. Now regarding your code, wrap variables "a" and "b" in parenthesis "()" and you are good to go. I hope it helped. (:

Ari Misha Actually, I tried Ward Madoyan 's code exactly as it was and it passed task 1 of the challenge just fine.

Ward, unfortunately sometimes we have problems with the web service that runs people's code challenges, and it returns an error even if the answer is correct. (If this is happening, it will usually be the un-helpful default error of "Bummer: Try again" rather than a hint that specifically helps you solve the current challenge.) If you suspect this is happening, check http://status.teamtreehouse.com/ . If the service is currently down, there will be a notification there. You can also e-mail support@teamtreehouse.com for assistance.

Sorry for the trouble! If you try the challenge again now, it should work. Just reply if you have further trouble!
